Cheyenne WY (KGWN) - Residents in Wyoming who lost unemployment benefits will remain without payments for the time being.
A proposal to continue long-term unemployment benefits failed in the Senate today.
The plan needed 60 votes to move forward.
It only got 58, despite support from some Republicans.
The measure called for extending long-term jobless benefits that expired in December for three months.
Bipartisan negotiators have worked for several weeks to reach an agreement but they haven't been able to bridge their differences.
